I am on holidays at the moment, so I can not provide the output of udevinfo although I used it together with udevtest(8) to parse the rules.

I also saw the descrepance between the documentation and my experiences and there are no hints in their ChangeLog. As far as I can remember, the rules did not match when testing them with udevinfo/-test and BUS (which worked with older versions of udev) but with SUBSYSTEM.

Yes, I know. Originally my intent was to share my issues with libgphoto2 instead of reporting a real bug as the rules were provided according to my version of udev and compliant to the documentation. So I thought that somebody else might have the same problem. 

Also, there is no bug report concerning this behaviour on www.gphoto.org.
